Colbert Unloads on the One Question He’d Ask Trump: ‘What Does Vladimir Putin’s D*ck Taste Like?’
Whoever had “What does Vladimir Putin’s dick taste like?” on the Bingo card of things that comedian Stephen Colbert wants to ask Donald Trump just won YUGE.
That was the response that the Late Show host hysterically and inextricably gave to a young woman in the audience of Wednesday’s show who wondered what the real estate mogul would be asked if he appeared on the program. “My question is,” began the unnamed college student, “if you have Donald Trump on your show tonight, what would you ask him?”
The late night hosts typically come out and take a round of questions from the audience before the cameras start to roll. In this moment, the TV vet stopped and pondered his response while the audience groaned/booed at the invocation of the Republican nominee’s name.
With a heavy sigh he finally said, “Well we’re not broadcasting right now, so I’d say ‘What does Vladimir Putin’s dick taste like?'”
Of course, as you can see below, a stage right camera still rolls to capture the question-and-answer portion of the taping every night, and the Late Show has begun to publish some of these moments in recent weeks with viral success under the guidance of new EP Chris Licht.

There have long been rumored — but relatively unsubstantiated — links between Trump and the Russian President. The story was given new life following the recent leak of 20,000 DNC emails that were found to come from Russia, as many speculated that the timing of the leak just days before the party convention was done to aid Trump by knocking loose Hillary Clinton‘s nomination. The GOP nominee even asked Russia for a bit of help yesterday: “Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 emails that are missing,” he said during a news conference.
As for Colbert, he stands by his quip. “That’s a fine joke!” he said repeatedly, “just don’t tell it to your grandkids.” Colbert did in fact have the candidate on his CBS program in September, but the particular question above was not brought up. I couldn’t imagine why.
